The Mechanic and the Butcher

Cyril inspected his car’s repair. “Marvellous, how much?”
“What? It was just a wing mirror!”
“Yes but we had to replace the whole door. To get the colour match, you understand.”
Needing the car, Cyril begrudgingly paid up.
As usual that Saturday, the mechanic entered Cyril’s shop for his weekly steaks.
“That’ll be £615, Sam.”
“But it’s just two steaks!”
“And I’ve had to butcher a whole cow. You can’t just harvest two steaks, you understand.”
Sam’s eyes narrowed, “I can take my business elsewhere, you know.”
“So can I. Who d’you think would be the biggest loser?”

  1. I’d love to say that to the mechanic this morning, but D* I need the car. I’ve walked 235.7 miles and been hit by cars twice while it’s been down. It’s a racket!
